UBA Group Managing Director/CEO, Oliver Alawuba has completed a one-day business trip to UBA Sierra Leone. 

During his visit to the subsidiary, the GMD and other key executives from the Group had a series of meetings which included meeting with the Vice President of Sierra Leone Dr. Mohamed Juldeh Jalloh, the Bank Governor Professor Kelfala Kallon, the Nigerian High Commissioner to Sierra Leone His Excellency, Henry John Omaku (fcim), Board members, Management and Staff of UBA Sierra Leone and a cocktail dinner with some customers of the bank.

Mr. Alawuba went on to say that UBA as a bank remains committed to serving the good people of Sierra Leone with the very best of financial services and bringing to bear on the economy our experience as Africa’s global bank with a presence in four continents of the world: Africa, America, Europe, and Asia. 

The GMD further noted that the bank is adding two more branches to its network in the country; in Kono and Kenema districts. These two districts will soon experience the bank’s digital and conventional banking products and services to further improve financial inclusion in the country.

The GMD concluded by thanking the Board, Management, and staff of United Bank for Africa Sierra Leone for their continued efforts in providing excellent customer services to the customers of the bank and the impressive business growth and the apparent Top of Mind Awareness of the UBA brand in the country.
